We've all seen the reports of insurance companies cancelling people's health insurance policies and offering them Obamacare policies at double, and even Tripple what they were paying before.
My monthly premium was $196 in late 2009 before the first, Obamacare provisions took affect in 2010. A comparable Obamacare "bronze" policy will cost me $569 per month beginning in January.
When you consider that that "bronze" policy has a higher deductable and annual out-of-pocket than my cancelled policy, Mr. Obama has effectively TRIPPLED my premium.
Mr. Obama has given me options, however:
If I quit my 2 jobs and sit at home watching daytime soaps every day like my brother in law did, I can get an Obamacare "subsidy". My brother in law got one that allows him to get an Obamacare "gold" policy for about 1/8 the cost of what my "bronze" policy would cost me.
That is "fair", by Mr. Obama's reasoning.
I could also join a "labor union", whose members were core Obama supporters but, like everyone else with a job, they HATE Obamacare and will likely get a sweet deal exemption from Mr. Obama. Like congressmen, unions are fine with obamacare, as long as THEY don't have to get clobbered by it like the rest of us middle class americans.
I won't be buying the Obamacare "bronze" package in january. I simply can't afford it, so I'll have to take my chances as one of the "newly un-insured" Americans under the new law.
If I get seriously sick, maybe I can get on the Oprah Winfrey show and discuss bankruptcy. My brother in law never misses Oprah...
.... and he doesn't have to worry about getting sick either.
just copy and paste some right wing diatribe eh? Prove your story buddy. Give us the names of the insurance companies, your age, and any other specific information one would need to verify your made up story. You right wingers are just so full of impacted fecal material.
You are the Brainwashed Idiot Sluggo if you have not read and believe the numerous Reports from numerous sources that Obamacare is an absolute DISASTER,,,Just do a Google search on "I lost My Health Insurance"
And the more appropriate name should be: "CramCare". They could, they did, and now we have it! No input from anyone but Harry's and Nancy's boys and girls. In 2018, 80 percent of the nation were happy with their health care. Now 80 percent are unhappy. What a government we have.
Lets hope and pray and campaign for a republican sweep in 2014!
no matter how bad you think OUR government and democrats are - none of us are ultimately STUPID ENOUGH TO VOTE FOR A BUNCH OF WHINY RACIST PINHEADS WHO DO NOTHING BUT SPREAD HATRED!!! You can keep your lowlife Republican party. What a nauseous feeling I get when I hear the insipid boneheads on the right.
I am about as conservative as it gets. We already had an absurd health care system taking 20% of GNP - Congress protecting drug patents, ambulance chasers, judges, insurance companies, the medical profession's 'do no harm' nonsense, outrageous medical costs because people gorge and sit on their butts, etc.
Trying to overlay the extension of quality care to everyone was the worst possible solution - and the most costly as you know. Straight government-run care would have been better.
But then foreign doctors wouldn't come from all over the world to reap the USA bonanza.
